cover story brisbane city hall BrisBane City Hall has a proud history that it openly displays at every turn. S Since its construction began in 1920, Brisbane City Hall has been acknowledged as an impressive and imposing building. In the 21st century, this now heritage-listed building remains popular as one of – if not the – premier icon venue in Brisbane. Inside, it exudes all the atmosphere and nostalgia of a time long gone; evidence of master craftsmanship and exquisite building materials such as Queensland marble and local timbers feature throughout. Integrated discreetly with this old-world charm, are the unmistakable trappings of our own time – such as state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities, lighting, event theming, and exquisite catering, all supported by Brisbane City Hall’s precision event management staff. With its majestic Main Auditorium – the only circular auditorium in the city – Brisbane City Hall has long been a truly unique venue. The Main Auditorium features a magnificent domed ceiling with chandelier, a large stage, and with its spacious balcony has capacity for over 1500 delegates. Complementing this is a range of other beautifully appointed meeting and function rooms, catering to all styles and sizes of events. Outside, a revitalised King George Square will make the most of Brisbane’s love of the outdoors, enhancing event options at Brisbane City Hall even further. The grand ramp, due for completion in January 2009, will create a stunning outdoor function space that will flow seamlessly into City Hall’s interior. By mid 2009, King George Square will start to become a lively, active hub within Brisbane’s CBD, hosting civic events, outdoor concerts, and a range of other seasonal activities all year round. Amidst ample shade, its space will incorporate an amphitheatre area and outdoor audio-visual capability, providing the ideal outdoor event space extension for Brisbane City Hall. Whilst this latest work has been underway, Brisbane City Hall has remained abuzz with events, its busy schedule including school formals, weddings and glittering galas as well as trade shows, conferences and exhibitions. Events at Brisbane City Hall deliver a first-class experience for everyone involved – making all the right impressions, and creating lasting memories.
